This study reveals many gene resources for the ability to assimilate various sugars in addition to species-specific genes in K. marxianus, and the molecular basis of its attractive traits for industrial applications including high-temperature fermentation.
Selection and Optimization for Lipid Production of a Newly Isolated Oleaginous Yeast, Rhodosporidium toruloides DMKU3-TK16
Rhodosporidium toruloides DMKU3-TK16, an oleaginous yeast, was isolated from soil by an enrichment technique in nitrogen-limited medium I and produced a lipid quantity of 9.26 g/L which was 71.30 % of the dry biomass after 168 h of cultivation.
